I've played the other total war games thouroughly enjoyed them though, so I'll certainly give this one a try too.

"If you actually manage to have a battle, you'll find the Bark of the Pine Tree army formation unbeatable - we managed heroic victory after heroic victory all too easily, even with the difficulty set to Hard."

I have to agree Toka: strategy games seem to be getting worse....and are often buggy/badly balanced on release. I played Empire when it first came out and promptly sold it because of it obviously was going to require many patches to sort it out. Even now I get unexplained slow-downs on a Core I7-930/GTX470!
And companies now seem less and less interested in fixing their work. It's sad to say it but nowadays the smart money waits a few months after release before buying to ensure a good experience.
